Nicolás Demarchi

I'm a self taught developer who had worked with computers for the last 15 years,mostly as a SysAdmin/SysOps/SRE and for the last 4 years as a Python Developer at Satellogic.

I have  always been a proactive person, mostly self-taught, but I have taken several courses. I love to work with and in Free Software projects. GNU/Linux is my favorite platform but I also have a lot of experience in Wintel ones.

I love taking pictures, traveling and camping.

You can usually reach me in Freenode as gilgamezh.

EXPERIENCE

Satellogic, Buenos Aires —Operations Reliability Engineering Team Leader

DEC 2017 - PRESENT

As my team was growing (from one to 10 devs) I moved from “the only  developer of the team” to  technical leader and currently I'm the team  manager.

Satellogic, Buenos Aires — Software Engineer

JUL 2015 - DEC 2017

Satellogic will democratize access to space-based services by dramatically reducing the barriers to obtain real-time satellite data, creating a new layer of world-wide awareness.

I’m building  a platform to plan, operate and monitor a Satellite Fleet.

It includes software running in the satellite computers and ground control.

IAFE, Buenos Aires HPC Cluster Manager 

APR 2014 - JUL 2015

I was the manager of the Fenix Cluster of the Numerical Astrophysics Group in the Institute of Astronomy and Space Physics..

It is a Beowulf cluster running the Rocks Linux distro used to run heavy numeric simulations.

For me it was a big challenge because of the high performance computing in a GNU/Linux platform.

I also think that the Astrophysics Group aim is very important for human beings, so it was a double reward for me.

Clarin Global CMD, Buenos Aires Ops / Reliability engineering

SEP 2011 - MAR 2015

As a member of the Ops team I  worked with content sites like tn.com.ar, eltrecetv.com.ar, ciudad.com.ar (all sites of Grupo Clarin Network)s which  have a lot of traffic and were  a big challenge for me. These sites were Mainly built with Drupal and a lot of use of cache technologies like Varnish and memcached.And many other sites built mostly in LAMP environments and frameworks like Magento, Symfony, Cake, etc.

I also worked with the backend systems for e-commerce. This is a complex system with online transactions, logistic, ERP and CRM softwares and a lot of Web Services integration.

In this projects I worked with technologies like Tomcat, Apache ServiceMix, SugarCRM, etc.

Working for our own team's tools was a very important part of my job, too. I have developed tools for deploy automatization with Python/fabric and I've always worked in good practices, documentation, process standardized, and automatizing things with Bash or Python.

Also I am very good at pushing red buttons (5:14) http://tn.com.ar/sociedad/asi-se-hizo-el-rediseno-de-tn_404139
